To a sophisticated UK comedy audience brought up on post-modern stuff like Mitchell & Webb or Little Britain, Dunham will probably come across as pretty simplistic and hokey comedy. He opens his show saying how great it is to be in the capital of "the greatest country in the world" whereupon the audience go nuts. That just about says it all abut his target market - white, working-class, politically slightly right of centre. His recent UK live shows were apparently full of US ex-pats.
If you buy this DVD youll have to sit through about 15 minutes of Jeff's pretty average solo stand-up which mainly serves as material for his puppets to reference later on.
And its when he starts with his sidekicks that the act really takes off. His timing is impeccable and he does a few party pieces with the ventriloquist skills (if you can, seek out some vintage Dunham clips on youtube where he flits between 4 or 5 different voices puppets in quick sucession)
Its the Achmed and Peanut sections that slay me every time. The main problem is most of these routines are easy to find on youtube, including Dunham's own channel on the site.
